Charles Amirkhanian Interviewed on Radio Adelaide


Published December 1, 2011


Charles Amirkhanian visited with host Grahame Dudley of Radio Adelaide, Australia, on December 1, 2011 (9am-12pm).

"Imagine that you were asked to create a 60-second 'commercial' in the form of a work of new music which was to be aired on a European rock station. Furthermore, that the sound of the piece was, in some way, to exemplify the cultural connection between France and the U.S. Via immigration, migration, domination, and through war and peace, the populations of these two nations have, by the late 20th century, taken on striking multi-cultural profiles, which in the allotted time can be only hinted at here. My solution was to collage snippets of various ethnic musics, both from the former French colonies and from Cajun and Native American music."

Dudley plays a selection of music by Amirknanian, including a couple of pieces dedicated to the musical biographer and raconteur Nicolas Slonimsky.

They also discuss the life and works of Austrailian born composer Percy Grainger, including a story about a memorable evening spent in Grainger’s house.

RADIO ADELAIDE is a listener-supported community radio station.
